Articles of Faith Wordle

The Articles of Faith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints presented as a wordle. If you are not familiar with wordles, please visit our sister site, MormonWordles.com.

The image below is considerably larger than the Articles of Faith wordle images we previously posted, and much richer in color. The size of the words is proportional to the number of times they appear in the Articles of Faith.

The thirteen Articles of Faith outline the basic beliefs of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly known as the Mormon or LDS Church.

Below is a brief history of the Articles of Faith previously posted on our Mormon Wordles. Com site, and moved here in early 2017.

The Articles of Faith are brief, inspired statements outlining 13 basic points of belief of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Joseph Smith composed them in an 1842 letter to John Wentworth, publisher of the Chicago Democrat. Mr. Wentworth was seeking information on the history of the Church for a friend writing a history of the State of New Hampshire.

The letter was published in the Times and Seasons in March 1842. The Articles of Faith were later included in the Pearl of Great Price and became part of our scriptures when it became part of the “Standard Works” in 1880. Now, over 160 years after they were first penned, the Articles of Faith are learned by primary children and are often used to answer Gospel questions posed by nonmembers.

  1. Awesome! I didn’t even know this had A NAME! I guess when you make a wordle, you don’t type words like THE, AND, OR… etc, right?
    Thank you for sharing this

  2. You are welcome and thanks for the comment.

    You can just select a bunch of text, past it in the Wordle tool at Wordle.net, and it will remove common words (like the ones you mentioned) by default and create a Wordle. It also leaves out numbers by default.

    While creating a basic Wordle without “common words” is very easy, creating enhanced Wordles like the Article of Faith Wordle above is considerably more complex. We describe the basic steps we use to create “enhanced Wordles” in the Creating Wordles post over on our sister site, Mormon Wordles, at: https://www.mormonwordles.com/creating-wordles
